SuperMad Men: Can Superman Save Don Draper?

I’ve always been a fan of the opening credits for AMC’s Mad Men. What’s not to love about falling silhouettes? In the latest BustedTees tee, Superman saves Don Draper from a bad day. Now, THAT might make for a pretty interesting crossover episode. How do you think Lois Lane wold cope as a belittled copywriter?

Supermad Men is available now from BustedTees for $20.

Stan Lee POW! Ring

Stan Lee is one of the most heralded comic book writers of our time. He helped to define the genre. Many of the superhero characters that we love today and can’t wait to read and watch on the big screen originated from the mind of Stan Lee. He co-created characters like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and the Avengers.

At the age of 89, Stan Lee is still in the comic book game. He not only continues to make appearances in feature films from Marvel Studios, but he also runs POW (Purveyors of Wonder) Entertainment. POW produced Stan Lee’s Lightspeed and that network’s reality television series Who Wants to Be a Superhero?

Right now you can score an official Stan Lee ring emballozied with the POW logo. Each sterling silver ring is part of a limited run of 250 pieces and comes in a custom glass see-thru ring display case. The ring also includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Stan himself. The sterling silver collectible ring is available now for $275. Don’t have $275 lying around? They have a non Sterling Silver version going for $45.

Superman Caped Knee High Socks

These Superman Caped Knee High Socks from 80sTees is so bad that they’re awesome. Seriously, if you’ve got the audacity to use these socks (of course, with shorts not long pants) then you’ve earned a pair of thumbs of up from me. There really isn’t much more to be said about these.

The Superman Caped Knee High Socks is available now from 80sTees for $10.00.

And if you’re amongst the die-hard group of people that will dig these socks then you probably will love Justice League: Doom, the latest DC Animated movie. Justice League: Doom is available now from Amazon for $18.99.

Pop Culture: Minimalistic Pop Soda Cans

Pop Culture by David Schwen is an awesome minimalistic tee featuring popular icons as soda (or “pop” depending on where you live in teh country) cans. When I first saw this T-Shirt I said to myself, “I have to have this.” Can you name the rest? And with the  $10 Threadless Sale going on right now (and ending tomorrow), it was the perfect time to pick it up. It features some of the most recognizable characters, including R2-D2, Superman, Charlie Brown, and the Cookie Monster.

By the way, I say soda. How about you?

Should Zack Snyder’s Superman Look Like This?

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures recently released a photo revealing the look of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel. The preview suggests that the latest incarnation of Superman will be darker and grittier. At first glance, I thought Superman looked great. As long as they stay away from spandex I will be happy. However, I did notice that one thing was missing from the latest Superman – the vintage front hair curl.

“There’s been a bit of a ruckus on the internets over Superman’s locks. If you know me, you know that I love Superman. LOVE him. The ‘Christian Slater’ coif he’s sporting here is keeping me up at night. It aint right. My Photoshop skills are meager at best, but I managed to give Big Blue a digital haircut. Alright now, where’s that phone book… lemme see… wonder if Zack Snyder’s in here…” -Chris Gardner

No worries, illustrator Chris Gardner put together a nice mockup of what Henry Cavill’s Superman would look like with the famous hair curl. The added curl definitely makes this Superman more Superman-like. While we are unsure as to whether or not Superman will sport the hair curl in the movie (no other photo stills have been released), Cavill was spotted on set sporting the curl as Clark Kent.

Now the only thing left to worry about is whether or not Superman will be sporting the red tights in the Man of Steel.

Tech Noir + Other Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about Found Item Clothing and our good friend Travis Greenwood. Well now is as good of a time than ever to get all caught up. As you might know, Found Item Clothing faithfully recreates T-Shirt designs from popular movies of our youth. One of their most recent designs is called Tech Noir from the immensely popular 1984 Sci-Fi flick, The Terminator. This is classic James Cameron before he made 3D blue people. I kind of like the old James Cameron a better, but I digress.

Not sure of the Tech Noir reference? Its from the nightclub of the same name featured in the film. It was location for the initial sequence between Kyle Reece and the then pre-Governator T-800. Tech Noir is available now from Found Item Clothing for $19.95.

Travis has also been busy blogging over at the official Found Item Clothing blog, It Goes To 11. Check out the interview that he recently did with Jon Martin of Shirtoid. And if you’re feeling especially patriotic then head on over to Hide You Arms for a list of 26 Captain America T-Shirts that Travis put together as a guest post.
